Notes/Commercial Description:
An India Pale Ale style well suited for adventurous trips to the Upper Peninsula. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and an incredibly floral aroma.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured form a Boston Round growler into a pint glass. A nice, 1-finger ecru head appeared and dissipated into a thin ring around the outside of the glass. The color is golden straw in hue, and semi-hazed in texture. Really inviting.

S: Smooth and balanced, with a nice hop citrus blending evenly with an almost orang-juice sweetness. A mild malt character carries the smell through, with other notes of pine forest, wood, earth, and grass. Overall it's light on the nose.

T: Wow, this is not your standard-issue IPA, and yet follows similar flavor profiles. Some intangibles here that definitely kick it up a notch in my book. A nice, even-keeled taste in the mouth with a good hop/malt balance, followed by a slightly sharp swallow, and a bitter aftertaste. Smooth and blended the whole way, with no one flavor dominating. Tastes a lot like it smells. Flavor notes of citrus wedges dusted with sugar, flower petals, some great hop pine/floral notes right at the back of the tongue, and a light grain backbone. Superbly crafted.

M: Smooth, clean, and with just a touch of bite and bitterness on the swallow. It has all of the characteristics of a great IPA without leaning heavily on any one. Well-rounded, easy-drinking, and it feels great in the mouth.

O: This beer has all of the flavor of the IPA without some of the palate-crushing bitterness or harsh strength often seen. It's not a "big" IPA, but it's beauty is in its subtlety. Great flavors that are at times hard to place, but really a delight.
